Also check that both fans are turning in the same direction. I once had a 900 Turbo that had a cross-wired fan - the one in front of the turbo. This was pulling hot air from around the turbo (the exhaust manifold in your case) and pumping it through the radiator. The behaviour of the temperature guage was similar to what you describe. -- Michael Rochfort To reply remove "nospam" from email address tenpercenter <tenpercenter54nopsamail.com> wrote in message news:e1849f6b.0106301054.52d199b2nopsaming.google.com... > I have had a 1991 Saab 900 for over a year now and can't seem to fix > an overheating problem.
